Re: SERIOUSLY OT: Calling all chicks! IT'S PART 6!!

I've got something that smells worse than gear oil. Supercharger oil. I wanted to vomit when I changed it out when I had my Grand Prix.

Toyota revealed it's level 3 self driving car prototype this year. (level 1=basic things like radar cruise, pre-collision braking, lane keep assistance, etc..... level 5=fully autonomous)... my prediction is that 10 years after the first level 5 car hits the ground (which I think we're 5-7 years from) car ownership goes away entirely. It's a long explanation as to how we get there, because there'd be other explaining about how the industry currently works and is moving in that direction.... but yeah 10 years after the first level 5 hits the ground, you wont be able to own a car and drive it on public roads anymore. Which will pretty much eliminate the self-employed mechanic.
Automakers are already taking on HUGE expenses (actually a lot of it is being placed on dealerships, who are being unknowingly complacent) to condition people for the change, too... which also requires a lot of explanation. As an example, we now run about an 80/20 Lease/buy ratio right now, and that's been getting steeper every year. We also now roll service plans and tire plans into the lease costs. Pretty soon, nobody will even consider 'buying' a car anymore.

Re: SERIOUSLY OT: Calling all chicks! IT'S PART 6!!

Well my human driving car randomly died on my earlier. Was leaving a shop, started fine, drove 30 feet though the parking lot, stopped to pull onto the road and just died, no sputter or anything. Cranked right back up, no codes or anything. Seems to be fine... but I'm scratching my head, its never done that before lol.
